Bearing Off (Finishing the Game)

Once you have been able to move all of your checkers into your home board, you may begin to remove them. This process is known as bearing off. Once the checker is taken off the board, they may not re-enter the game. If an opponent hits one of your pieces (lands on a single checker), you will not be able to remove any additional pieces until that piece is brought back into your home board. The first player to remove all of their pieces wins the game.
